Blade Runner - The Final Cut in Los Angeles

  • Posted by: Steve Biodrowski
  • Event Date & Time: Exclusive West Coast engagement
  • Location: Landmark Theatre - 10850 West Pico at Westwood Blvd in West Los Angeles (310) 281-8233

The so-called "Final Cut" of BLADE RUNNER - the sci-fi masterpiece directed by Ridley Scott, based on the novel "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?" by Philip K. Dick - is receiving a digital presentation at the new and wonderful Landmark Theatre.

I don't have time to go into details about the various versions of the film that have emerged since the initial release in 1982. Let's just say that the 1992 "Director's Cut" was a compromise forced by time (the release was schedule, and Scott was busy working on his Colombus movie).

The film will come out on DVD in December - a magnificent five-disc set containing the new cut and all the previous versions that have seen the light of day in various shapes and sizes.
